By Dawn’s Early Light


Scene of a group of figures standing at the side of a ship on the water and looking towards the shore through a fog. One man in a red jacket stands at the top of steps gesturing with his hand towards the American flag flying on land. A second man in a blue jacket leans on the steps and looks in the same direction. A child stands in the foreground with his back to the picture plane facing the flag. More figures can be seen behind this group, and more ships are seen on the water in the background.
